Condo/Apartment
No.3 is a one bedroom very spacious 1st floor apartment which has been lovingly renovated to a high standard combining modern features such as central heating, insulation, great shower etc with some original features such as internal exposed stone walls. The Old Convent was originally built as a church in 1842, then converted into a convent 'St Scholastica's Priory' in 1891, the nun's took residence in 1892 until 1922 when the remaining nun's were moved to Holme Eden Abbey. Some of the nun's are buried in the graveyard at Fort Augustus Abbey, half a mile from the convent on the shores of Loch Ness. We are close to main road with the convent woods to rear giving you privacy, and a fantastic view of golf course and Ben Tee to front. The property is ready for guests arrival from 4pm unles...No.3 is a one bedroom very spacious 1st floor apartment which has been lovingly renovated to a high standard combining modern features such as central heating, insulation, great shower etc with some original features such as internal exposed stone walls.

The property is ready for guests arrival from 4pm unless otherwise arranged, we ask that guests leave by 10am on day of departure as we need time to clean for next guests. If No.3 is already booked for the dates you want please ask about No.1 or No.4 Chris is able to offer both guitar (beginner/intermediate) & fiddle (beginner) lessons to anyone who fancies a go.More

About the neighbourhood
Fort Augustus is central to the highlands and is a great location for hill walkers with plenty of Munro's and Corbett's to choose from. Fort William has Ben Nevis and the fantastic mountain bike tracks/skiing in winter of Aonach Mor , the steam train used in a Harry Potter film to Mallaig is well worth taking, the road to the Isle of Skye passing Eilean Donan castle is just breathtaking! You can take a guided wildlife boat trip on Loch Sheil from Glenfinnan where you can spot otters, eagles, seals and many more wild creatures! If you take the boat trip on Loch Ness...you never know, Nessie might pop her head up or if you go to Loch Morar you might get a glimse of the monster Morag. Then of course the dramatic Glencoe, well worth a visit.
Getting around
There is a bus service between the main towns around the area however we do recommend that you have your own transport to really see the best of what is on offer in this area.
